Unique opportunity to own a piece of living American history. The Circa 1850 Greek Revival Conoho Masonic Lodge is one of the very few remaining buildings that survived North Carolina’s Antebellum period. Nestled in a close-knit agricultural community steeped in Southern history along the Roanoke River, and convenient to the Outer Banks and Raleigh. The Lodge has been transformed into a home featuring a refurbished kitchen, updated electrical with all plumbing replaced. Pain-staking detail to assure repairs were made with historically accurate materials, to include all rotten wood has been replaced with period corrected materials both inside and outside the structure. A huge chandelier greets you as you enter the Lodge and go through the Dutch door into a large open room that contains an updated kitchen, granite center island, a unique bar area and a bathroom complete with clawfoot tub. There are beautiful Heart Pine wood floors and high bead-board ceilings throughout. Open the original plank door to the second floor and you will see the signature of Confederate Captain Bubba Thomas Duval, preserved above the window, continue up the stairs to the Meeting Room and you will see preserved writings, drawings and signatures of Masons of the Confederacy and the North. The Second floor has been converted into a bedroom with a half bath. The door from the half bath to the bedroom still contains the portal from which the Masonic Warden would announce entrance to the Sanctuary. The Rear yard includes a large deck and shed.
